RICHARDSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CommScope,
Inc., a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications
networks, is continuing in its vision to help data center operators
realize greater value within their physical infrastructure by
introducing its Living
CommScope’s Living Infrastructure is an approach to designing, deploying
and evolving data centers that encompasses a comprehensive portfolio of
structured cabling solutions and planning tools. These solutions and
tools can help customers drive efficiency through flexibility in
addressing unanticipated changes in network design and priorities.
Data centers are critical to the IT operations of most organizations,
playing a key role in storing and accessing information used to run the
business. Whether it is to operate an enterprise-owned or co-location
data center, CommScope can provide the infrastructure vital to support a
network’s current and future requirements.
Modifying or expanding a data center presents a unique opportunity to
design a network that maximizes the best of today’s technology while
providing a clear path to the future. The Living Infrastructure Design
Guide for Data Centers is now available for download and can guide data
center personnel through the selection of pre-configured reference
designs based on industry best practices. Users can evaluate different
network architectures and select appropriate cabling solutions quickly
and with confidence.
CommScope’s Living Infrastructure approach is also bringing new
solutions to market that organizations can quickly deploy in their data
center today while allowing them to evolve with future growth and the
introduction of new technologies. One such solution is the InstaPATCH®
ZERO(tm) server cabinet solution.
Developed in collaboration with IT enclosure industry leader Rittal
Corporation, InstaPATCH ZERO is the first pre-terminated server cabinet
solution on the market. The InstaPATCH ZERO solution is first being
introduced in North America and Latin America. This solution platform is
built on a unique modular 600-mm wide server cabinet equipped with
pre-terminated cabling cassettes that require “zero” space in the
vertical racks, enabling full server deployment.Coupled with a
4U mini-rack mounted above the cabinet, InstaPATCH ZERO provides copper
and fiber connectivity in an integrated, modular system that enables
rapid “Roll-in” and “Plug-in” server cabinet deployment and facilitates
best practices in intra-cabinet cable management. Together with InstaPATCH®
Cu and InstaPATCH®
360, InstaPATCH ZERO provides an end-to-end pre-terminated
structured cabling solution that not only reduces server cabinet
deployment times, but enhances the ability to respond to change as data
“The InstaPATCH ZERO solution is an outstanding example of how CommScope
is executing on its vision of Living Infrastructure,” said George
Brooks, senior vice president, Data Center business unit, CommScope.
“The collaboration between CommScope and Rittal will allow data center
customers to select a turn-key solution designed for rapid server
deployment and change management. By helping our customers with rapid
deployment, we help them realize a higher investment value by saving
time, money, space while also enabling them to plan for tomorrow’s
InstaPATCH ZERO is ideal for those organizations that intend to adopt a
pre-terminated and flexible structured cabling solution for rapid server
deployment, have high density environments with limited real estate and
regularly deploy and/or decommission servers.
